Consumerism and Community
I wouldn’t be here today writing this blog if it wasn’t for an amazing community who have supported me along the way. I just came back from speaking at the Recurring Revenue Retreat where I got to spend time with some of those old friends, meet online friends and make new friends. We are truly blessed to have such a supportive and friendly community.
The thing about being “the profit guy” or “the finance guy” is people always expect you to tell them not to spend money. One of my core personal and professional beliefs is that money is solely a means to achieve a purpose. Whether that purpose is financial security, growing your profits or making an impact for others.
Christmas, Black Friday especially, is when a lot of the world embraces consumerism on steroids. Now that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Although most of us, including yours truly, go overboard on buying stuff this time of year. The solution is not to ruthlessly slash our spending; it’s to be more intentional with our spending. Not just what we are buying, but who we are buying from and why we are buying. If you know me you know I love a good analogy so you can look at this way. Changing what you eat can be more impactful than how much you eat. You can be healthier, lose more weight and keep it off longer by focusing more on “the what” rather than “the how much”. Both are important and too much of a good thing can easily become a bad thing. This is why I created The Freedom Budget to help you focus your spending and not merely cut your spending.
What follows is a list of Black Friday specials from people in our community. If you could use some of these products and services, redirecting part of our spending to support these businesses who support our community is a way that you can grow your profit and your impact at the same time. NONE of them are affiliate links. I don’t know everyone on the list but I do know if they made this list they are trusted by people I trust.
